Host Shan Coughlin welcomes back to the studio, Ethan Lyshon, golf professional, on the Tee It Up Grand Strand Eagle Nest Golf Club March Update. Eagle Nest is located in Little River South Carolina just south of the North Carolina border and is one of the oldest courses on the Grand Strand built by the late Senator Dick Elliott and his family. Heralded back in the day for having the toughest three finishing holes on the beach, they are still fantastic to play, but the debate is out there as to whether they are currently the “toughest”.
As with older courses, renovations and upkeep to the course and facilities happen each year and they are now primed and ready for the spring golf season meaning locals and those who get hear early will be able to take advantage of the conditions now. Ethan shared how the Bradford Pear trees are in full bloom and the azaleas are soon to follow, perfect timing right before The Masters. When looking for a course to play, there are so many options available, so selecting one that is tried and true, year after year, ensures your experience is tried and true, year after year. For the best rates, ask for the PGA4 or PGA5 package from your provider or here at TheGolfDirector.com. If you will be here a while or live in the area, you will want to get the Platinum Golf Membership. Play Eagle Nest 4 times at the Member Rate and the next one is complimentary.
When asked what his “favorite hole” was, Ethan picked a scenic par 3 where the tee box is nestled between two Carolina Bays with very old and large cypress trees on each side. Who wouldn’t want to tee off in from that position? And that’s not the only nature you’ll experience at the course. The wildlife is prevalent including birds, gators, fox and more. And yes, this is all located right off Highway 17, the main road that brings you into the beach so it is so easy to find.

She says EagleS Nest with an “s” about 2-3 times. You won’t find it if you google EagleS Nest so just remember no “S” and you’ll be fine.
